Headphone jack problem

Even when I try differing headphones, the headphone jack takes a big of wiggling and proding around to get the sound to come out clearly in both speakers. Can I take it to best buy and get this fixed or fix it myself or what?

Most likely the solder points inside the unit where the headphone jack attaches to the system board have come undone. If you know how to solder, you could open the unit and fix it. If that is not an option, you could resort to using the other headphone jack instead assuming it is not damaged as well.

The head phone jack is causing crackles and static noise and not a clear reception. I move the earbud jack around to get the right sound. Is there a way to permanently fix the headphone jack port?


It is very possible that the problem lies with your headphones and not the player. Have you tried to use a different set of headphones to see if that fixes the problem?

MUSIC HAS NO SOUND


If it's all music on the mp3 player,then try a different pair of headphones. If still no sound, try partially unplugging, plugging in the headphones and try wiggling the connector .If there is still no sound, then try erasing all the songs on it and restore the device. If that doesn't help, then it's probably time to replace the mp3 player since the headphone jack is damaged.

How do I fix a bad connection with the headphone jack on my ipod touch? When plugged in, the music is static-y. It is definitely the headphone jack that is the problem.


Hi, this seems to happen on a lot of mp3 players , usually when you wiggle the headphone in the jack the sound cuts in and out, its the result of the headphone jack bending the metal contact inside the player or can be due to a build up of dirt/ grime in the socket.The problem generally gets worse as time goes on
if you have tried it with different headphones still get the problem and its still under warranty I would get on the apple site or down to you local apple centre and try and get a replacement.
Sometimes a spray of deoxit (plastic conductive lubricant /cleaner)
in the socket does the trick , but I would strongly reccomend trying to get a replacemnt

DONT CLEAR THE VOICE OF SONGS


ok well i am thinking that if you wiggle around the headphone jack you might get it. i believe you have a few loose solders and i hope that we have found the problem, i have a samsung yp-p2 and the headphone jack is loose and the lyrics will fade out basically and become unclear, so your headphone jack is probably loose.

Ipod head phone jack no good


I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!

Cannot hear music


The bad news is that your headphone jack is most likely shot. The soldered connections inside are most likely broken. This is not repairable generally, at least not for a cost that would be reasonable. Music will play through your computer because it can be read off your player through the USB connection. Use it as a data storage drive and buy a new one, or a used one. I've seen used T30s on Amazon for around $30 to $40.

Audio Problems with Sansa e260


apparently you may need to defragment your player with disk defragmenter because the mp3 has a hard time getting the pieces of your file fast enough to not hear an almost unnoticeable pop or crackle. if this isn't the reason, it is probably the jack, try a different pair of headphones even. or check the settings on the program synchronizing as it may be syncing the files at a noticeably lower sound quality. Or you are drag and dropping which may not be recommended for inexperienced users. no offence :).
